My South Korea Photobook

Few weeks before chancing upon the canvas offer, my sister told me about this great offer from Photobook Malaysia. You pay only RM150 instead of RM544 for a 11” x 11” Large Square Imagewrap Hardcover, 80 pages. What a great deal ya? That was back in August. Since I’ve just came back from South Korea, I thought I’ll print the photos on a photobook. This was my first experience developing my digital photos into photobook.

What do you think of the cover? Nice?

I paid another RM141 for the leather slipcase and choice of photo paper.

When I received my photobook, I was really dissatisfied with the quality. The photos were so dark even though I have lighten them in Photoshop. I made a complaint and was asked to re-upload new lighten photos. Bravo to Photobook Malaysia customer service. The new photobook received (points above) is the lighten version.

These are some of my favorite photos from my 2014 South Korea trip. I can’t show you more as they have pictures of my mom and sister. πŸ˜›

Overall, I’m on a fence on this photobook quality. They are not bad but could be better in terms of sharpness and brightness.

    The front cover is beautiful and so are the pictures on the pages shown…vibrant!

    Hopefully for the price you pay, they didn’t purposely lower the quality of the product.

      Hi Dawn, that’s what I worry about. I can’t compare unless I bought one at original price but then they are expensive without discount. Hehehe
